NEMO ROB LARGE JPEG

NEMO: ROSES OF BERLIN by Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill

56 pages 26.5 x 17.5 cm | ISBN 9780861662302

Become commander of the legendary Nautilus aged just fifteen on the occasion of her father’s death, in 1925 the science-brigand Janni Nemo set out for the frozen reaches of Antarctica in order to fulfil his legacy, learning amidst the subsequent loss and madness an important lesson of the heart.

Now it is 1941, and with Janni’s daughter strategically married into the family of aerial warlord Jean Robur, the combined Houses of Nemo and Robur are engaged in running skirmishes against the military might of German-Tomanian dictator Adenoid Hynkel, a clownish lunatic who has dragged the world into a horrifying vortex of war and destruction. However, when the pirate queen learns that loved ones are held hostage in the nightmarish Berlin metropolis she has no choice save to intervene directly, travelling with her ageing lover Broad Arrow Jack into the belly of the beast.

But down amongst the ramps and walkways of that alienated city there are monsters, criminals and legends every bit as ill-famed and formidable as she herself, including the remaining vestiges of Germany’s notorious ‘Twilight Heroes’, a dark Teutonic counterpart to Mina Murray’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And waiting at the far end of this gauntlet of alarming adversaries there is something much, much worse.

Continuing in the adventurous tradition of their self-contained thriller Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill present a blazing narrative that rampages through twentieth century culture and portrays the volatile convergence or four startling and striking women in a place of long totalitarian shadows; in black and bloody alleyways where thrive

This is what the reviewers said about Nemo: Heart of Ice:

“Ever pushing boundaries, the tale is crammed with literary and visual detail from start to finish”  downthetubes

“A brilliantly crafted piece, full of wonder and chills”  Forbidden Planet International

The Bojeffries Saga Cover

THE BOJEFFRIES SAGA by Alan Moore & Steve Parkhouse

Alan Moore & Steve Parkhouse

96 pages paperback with flaps 255 x 185 mm | ISBN 9780861662319

“Think the Munsters written by Alan Bennett high on episodes of Coronation Street, all beautifully rendered in a style equal parts Robert Crumb and the Bash Street Kids’ Leo Baxendale”

—-Mike Moran The Independent

 

The Bojeffries Saga began in Warrior magazine in 1982 and has not been collected for many years.

Jobremus Bojeffries is like any other father — trying to keep the peace in a house stuffed with two kids (Ginda and Reth), uncles Raoul and Festus, a baby and old Grandpa Podlasp. Never mind that one’s a werewolf, one’s a vampire, Grandpa is in the last stages of organic matter, and the baby puts off enough thermonuclear energy to power England and Wales….All right, they’re no ordinary family. And this is no ordinary book, with stories spanning decades, a whole chapter written as light opera, a Christmas episode, and an all-new 24-page comic bringing the Bojeffries up to the present day. On every page, the wry and anarchic creativity of the creators shines through: Alan Moore’s affectionate and penetrating grasp of human nature (and British culture) creates a kind of desperate poignancy in the characters, brought to memorable life by Steve Parkhouse’s deft and articulate line work.

It’s all there, untutored, unpolished, ramshackle and always on the edge of collapse. Very much like Britain itself.

DODGEM LOGIC #1 signed by Alan Moore

Alan Moore & Various

48 pages magazine + CD. 297 x 210mm | ISBN 9780861661640

Limited edition signed and numbered by Alan Moore on the front cover.

DODGEM LOGIC: Colliding ideas to see what happens. Forty years after the heyday of the alternative press, writer Alan Moore is launching the 21st century’s first underground magazine from his home town of Northampton, a community that is right at the geographical, political and economic heart of the country; one which has half its high street boarded up and is at present dying on its arse, just like everywhere else. Dodgem Logic sets out to provide a splash of subterranean exotica in a bleached-out cultural and social landscape. Regular columnists provide delicious, inexpensive recipes, wide-ranging medical advice, simple instructions for creating stylish clothing and accessories from next to nothing, guides to growing your own dinner by becoming a guerrilla gardener, and, in the first of Dave (The Self-Sufficient-ish Bible) Hamilton’s environmental columns, a bold experiment in living with no money. Not only seeking to give practical advice on getting through a rough stretch, Dodgem Logic is also committed to brightening the world with the astonishing cartoon-work of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’s Kevin O’Neill or that of underground legend Savage Pencil; the musings of Father Ted, The IT Crowd and Black Book’s own Graham Linehan or of the nation’s sweetheart, the implacably positive Josie Long. In addition to a variously-hosted women’s column launched by Lost Girls co-creator and underground cartoon artist Melinda Gebbie, Alan Moore will himself be contributing a lead feature on the history of underground subversive publishing from its origins in the thirteenth century.
48 pages + 8 page local insert all in full psychedelic colour and a free CD of a history of Northampton Music.

“Steve Moore, who lives in the same room he was born in 61 years earlier, is a living metaphor for the history, geography and geology of Shooter’s Hill and a conduit to the Greek gods and spiritual manifestations… Is it great art? Yes!” — N.M.E.

“The men of Unearthing are only marginally of this plane of existence, and what they’ve created is positively out of this world.” — The AV Club

“A tribute to a colleague and mentor and a demonstration that Moore has transcended the boundaries of the graphic novel.” – The New York Times

Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill

56 pages 26.5 x 17.5 cm | ISBN 97808616611831

It’s 1925, fifteen years after the death of Captain Nemo, when his daughter Janni Dakkar launches a grand Antarctic expedition to lay the old man’s burdensome legacy to rest. Accompanied by Nemo’s shipmate Ishmael, a ration of rum and her father’s log, Janni embarks on a perilous journey to the bottom of the world pursued by employees of the megalomaniacal Charles Foster Kane who seek the return of plundered loot. Jules Verne meets H.P. Lovecraft in the final showdown beneath the Mountains of Madness – the uncharted gap in the map where time is broken and our hero’s reality is about to crack.

Ready the Nautilus. She’s going back to the South Pole.

LOST GIRLS SMALL

LOST GIRLS by Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie

Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie

320pages 30 x 23 cm | ISBN 9780861661800

The ground-breaking and controversial LOST GIRLS is now available in a super-deluxe (yet affordable) single-volume hardcover edition!

For more than a century, Alice, Wendy and Dorothy have been our guides through the Wonderland, Neverland and Land of Oz of our childhoods. Now like us, these three lost girls have grown up and are ready to guide us again, this time through the realms of our sexual awakening and fulfilment. Through their familiar fairy tales they share with us their most intimate revelations of desire in its many forms, revelations that shine out radiantly through the dark clouds of war gathering around a luxury Austrian hotel. Drawing on the rich heritage of erotica, Lost Girls is the rediscovery of the power of ecstatic writing and art in a sublime union that only the medium of comics can achieve. Exquisite, thoughtful, and human, Lost Girls is a work of breath-taking scope that challenges the very notion of art fettered by convention. This is erotic fiction at its finest. For ADULTS ONLY

“Lost Girls is to erotic literature what Moore’s now classic 1987 Watchmen (with Dave Gibbons) was to the superhero scene. Each busts the frames of its respective genre with formal precision; each reflects upon its own ways and means through books within the book; and, most importantly, each kicks great writing into hyperdrive with dense and resonant imagery. – The Village Voice

“I think Lost Girls is not only one of the best things Alan Moore has ever written, I also think it’s a fairly important work of art judged by any standard. It’s genuinely dangerous. … One of the most human and heartfelt pieces of work of his career.” – Ain’t It Cool News

“As an exercise in the formal bounds of pure comics, Lost Girls is remarkable, as good as anything Moore has done in his career. … Whatever you call it, there has never been anything quite like this in the world before, and I find myself extraordinarily pleased that someone of Moore’s ability actually has written that sort of comics for adults.” – Neil Gaiman

LEAGUE CENTURY 2009 COVER FINAL VERSION

THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN Vol III: CENTURY 2009 by Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill

Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill

80 pages paperback 260 x 170mm | ISBN 9780861661633

Even for immortals, a hundred years is a long time.

In 1910 we saw our pantheon of literary legends first alerted to a looming supernatural threat, and also given their first taste of what the coming 20th century might have in store, for them and for the world at large: a new and brutal landscape with a much-increased capacity for horrors that almost made their volatile and bloody 19th century seem placid by comparison.

In 1969 we watched as a greatly reduced ensemble tried without success to cope with an increasingly empowered and daunting occult menace, while also attempting to address the stresses of their own longevity, against the sinister and swirling psychedelic backdrop of a culture in upheaval.

Now, in 2009, the promised Armageddon has arrived and there is only one remaining member of our cohort of adventurers left to avert it. Traumatised by his involvement in a middle-eastern war of occupation, the eternal ambiguity Orlando is returned to an unrecognisable contemporary London and a rapidly collapsing world of moral, social and financial destitution. The intended antichrist is born, and even the most powerful eminences of the Blazing World have not been able to forestall his coming. As for Allan Quartermain or Mina Murray, nobody’s heard from them in decades.

The apocalyptic climax of the third and most ambitious volume to contain the League’s unfolding narrative, CENTURY: 2009 turns its scrutiny of the entire fictional landscape to our presently uproarious era as it hurtles to a staggering conclusion that even immortal champions may not survive.

THE LOEG: BLACK DOSSIER Paperback by Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill

Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill

208 pages 260 x 170 mm | ISBN 9780861661770

England in the mid-1950′s is not the same as it was. The powers that be have instituted some changes. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen have been disbanded and disavowed, and the country is under the control of an iron-fisted regime. Now, after many years, the still youthful Mina Murray and a rejuvenated Allan Quatermain return in search of some answers — answers that can only be found in a book buried deep in the vaults of their old headquarters — a book that holds the key to the hidden history of the League throughout the ages: The Black Dossier. As Allan and Mina delve into the details of their precursors, some dating back centuries, they must elude their dangerous pursuers who are hell-bent on retrieving the lost manuscript…and ending the League once and for all.

THE BLACK DOSSIER is an elaborately designed, cutting-edge volume that includes a “Tijuana Bible” insert and a 3-D section complete with glasses, as well as additional text pieces, maps, and several different paper stocks.

DODGEM LOGIC DECLARES “SUMMER OF LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME” Behind a fully loved-up hallucinogenic cover from modern psychedecadent maestro John Coulthart, Alan Moore’s subterranean soapbox reaches its fourth issue in a sunburst of mind-bending splendour. England’s only openly gay teacher speaks her mind in a delightfully delinquent diatribe, rib-tickling rationalist Robocop Robin Ince fixes upon another target while making inhuman computer noises inside his head. In keeping with this issue’s sun-fried freak-out theme, Deadhead Dick Foreman contributes a guided tour into the paisley undergrowth of psychedelic culture, while the magazine’s founder looks at America and its relationship with science fiction in an informed rant titled ‘Frankenstein’s Cadillac’. We present the next instalment of Melinda Gebbie’s dream-drenched San Franciscan flashback and are honoured to display, a delirious gallery of her electrifying etchings. Retro-Spankee Josh Ryan serves up an appreciation of children’s book author, ‘Sylvia’s Mother’ songwriter and Freaker’s Ball deviant Shel Silverstein, Alex Novak wheels out some more phonographic oddities adrift within their bell-jars so that we can squint and poke at them, while Margaret Killjoy charmingly continues her helpful advice for dealing with civilisation’s downfall without eating any of our neighbours. Kevin O’Neill offers us a sobering expose of trans-species pole dancing, we have a two-page Savage Pencil epic, and Steve Aylett turns out anxious-looking pigs until we’re begging him to stop. Our Daily Mustard newshounds bring us stories ripped screaming from the world’s headlines. Dave Hamilton emits more soundings from the Eco Chamber, our guerrilla gardener Claire Ashby digs for victory and we have a full complement of Spinning Doctors, Great Hipsters, tongue-seducing recipes and do-it-yourself doo-dads to transform your otherwise probably bleak and colourless existences. Meanwhile, this issue’s locally-sourced and child-friendly free gift is a magnificently trippy A2 poster by Alan Moore and Joe Brown. On top of that we have Steve Moore lowering his flagon of absinthe for long enough to pen an eloquent paean to pacifism, the conclusion of Gary Mills’ searing sink-estate indictment and all the regular fun and foment of our eight-page local insert, Notes from Noho.

64 pages + 8 page local insert and a free full colour A2 poster .

DODGEM LOGIC #3 by Alan Moore & Co.

Alan Moore & Various

64 pages magazine + T-shirt transfer 297 x 210mm | ISBN 2043-7919

Issue #3 has a spine and more pages with a fantastic wraparound cover drawn by Alan Moore.

While the popular primates that we promised you last issue have receded back into the mist, we’ve tried hard to alleviate your sense of cheated rage and disappointment by enlisting laugh-along Luddites-for-Literature supremo Robin Ince to smooth the gentle gradient of your furrowed brow. We also tracked down Josie Long through credit-card transactions in her brave but ultimately doomed Shawshank Redemption bid for freedom, so she’s back with us and doing what she likes best, if that’s being handcuffed to a radiator. As for the thick wedge of extra pages that you’re paying through the nose for in this bumper issue, they contain a rare compendium of delights. We’ve got confessions of calamitous careers in the constabulary, step-by-step instructions for do-it-yourself diabolism and the rigorous recriminatory ruminations of a rogue town planner. We’ve got divine decadence and sultry San Francisco nights along with the exploits of troubled everyman Johnny Viable, some glamorous graffiti, and a tantalising T-shirt transfer from the crayon box of Dodgem Logic’s vendor of voluptuousness Melinda Gebbie.

64 pages + 8 page local insert and a free full colour T-shirt transfer by Melinda Gebbie.

DODGEM LOGIC #1 by Alan Moore & Co.

Alan Moore & Various

48 pages magazine + CD. 297 x 210mm | ISBN 9780861661640

DODGEM LOGIC: Colliding ideas to see what happens. Forty years after the heyday of the alternative press, writer Alan Moore is launching the 21st century’s first underground magazine from his home town of Northampton, a community that is right at the geographical, political and economic heart of the country; one which has half its high street boarded up and is at present dying on its arse, just like everywhere else. Dodgem Logic sets out to provide a splash of subterranean exotica in a bleached-out cultural and social landscape. Regular columnists provide delicious, inexpensive recipes, wide-ranging medical advice, simple instructions for creating stylish clothing and accessories from next to nothing, guides to growing your own dinner by becoming a guerrilla gardener, and, in the first of Dave (The Self-Sufficient-ish Bible) Hamilton’s environmental columns, a bold experiment in living with no money. Not only seeking to give practical advice on getting through a rough stretch, Dodgem Logic is also committed to brightening the world with the astonishing cartoon-work of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’s Kevin O’Neill or that of underground legend Savage Pencil; the musings of Father Ted, The IT Crowd and Black Book’s own Graham Linehan or of the nation’s sweetheart, the implacably positive Josie Long. In addition to a variously-hosted women’s column launched by Lost Girls co-creator and underground cartoon artist Melinda Gebbie, Alan Moore will himself be contributing a lead feature on the history of underground subversive publishing from its origins in the thirteenth century.
48 pages + 8 page local insert all in full psychedelic colour and a free CD of a history of Northampton Music.

LEAGUE 1969

THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN Vol III: CENTURY 1969 by Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill

Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill

80 pages paperback 260 x 170mm | ISBN 9780861661626

Century is a 216-page epic spanning almost a hundred years. Divided into three 72-page chapters – this monumental tale takes place in three distinct eras, building to an apocalyptic conclusion occurring in our own current twenty-first century.
BOOK TWO takes place almost sixty years later in the psychedelic daze of Swinging London during 1969, a place where Tadukic Acid Diethylamide 26 is the drug of choice, and where different underworlds are starting to overlap dangerously to an accompaniment of sit-ins and sitars. The vicious gangster bosses of London’s East End find themselves brought into contact with a counter-culture underground of mystical and medicated flower-children, or amoral pop-stars on the edge of psychological disintegration and developing a taste for Satanism. Alerted to a threat concerning the same magic order that she and her colleagues were investigating during 1910, a thoroughly modern Mina Murray and her dwindling league of comrades attempt to navigate the perilous rapids of London’s hippy and criminal subculture, as well as the twilight world of its occultists. Starting to buckle from the pressures of the twentieth century and the weight of their own endless lives, Mina and her companions must nevertheless prevent the making of a Moonchild that might well turn out to be the antichrist.

LEAGUE 1910

THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN Vol III: CENTURY 1910 by Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill

Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill

80 pages paperback 260 x 170mm | ISBN 9780861661602

The third volume detailing the exploits of Miss Wilhelmina Murray and her extraordinary colleagues, Century, is a 216-page epic spanning almost a hundred years. Divided into three 72-page chapters – this monumental tale takes place in three distinct eras, building to an apocalyptic conclusion occurring in our own current twenty-first century.

Drawing from the fiction, theatre, film and television culture of the twentieth century as artfully as the preceding volumes drew upon the literature of the nineteenth, this first instalment of the League’s adventures takes our familiar cast of characters … plus several previously unfamiliar … and propels them into a new age, Chapter one is set against a backdrop of London, 1910, twelve years after the failed Martian invasion and nine years since England put a man upon the moon. With Halley’s Comet passing overhead, the nation prepares for the coronation of King George V, and far away on his South Atlantic Island, the science-pirate Captain Nemo is dying. In the bowels of the British Museum, Carnacki the ghost-finder is plagued by visions of a shadowy occult order who are attempting to create something called a Moonchild, while on London’s dockside the most notorious serial murderer of the previous century has returned to carry on his grisly trade. Working for Mycroft Holmes’ British Intelligence alongside a rejuvenated Allan Quartermain, the reformed thief Anthony Raffles and the eternal warrior Orlando, Miss Murray is drawn into a brutal opera acted out upon the waterfront by players that include the furiously angry Pirate Jenny and the charismatic butcher known as Mac the Knife.

More than this, with its third volume the League’s exploits move into a different realm of format, artistry and story-telling as this remarkable series sets out to explore the full limits of the vast fictional cosmos that it has marked as its territory. A unified field theory of fiction as much as a comic-book story, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Volume III): Century is sure to be like nothing you have ever read.

572 pages paperback with flaps 255 x 190mm | ISBN 9780861661411

This major graphic novel tells the story of Jack the Ripper, the most infamous serial murderer of all time. Although suggesting that the murderer was Dr. William Gull, Queen Victoria’s physician, covering up for her grandson Albert who had fathered a child by a prostitute. Moore says Jack’s identity is inconsequential to the manner in which society embraced the fear “It’s about us. It’s about our minds and how they dance. Jack mirrors our hysteria. Faceless, he is the receptacle for each new social panic”

“Though technically a comic, it hardly begins to describe From Hell’s inimitable grandeur, as it takes the medium to fresh heights of ingenuity and craftsmanship”. Danny Graydon – Amazon

“If a literate comic was once a novelty, Moore has moved the medium into the realms of academia with From Hell” S.F.Said – The Daily Telegraph

“Moore’s writing is complemented by Campbell’s often staggeringly effective black &white renditions of stiff-backed Victorians swimming against the tides of history”. Richard Gehr – Village Voice

“From Hell operates as a horror story, a conspiracy theory, a thesis on how the 1880s and the Ripper crimes bled into, the next 100 years of history and myth” Nick Hasted – The Guardian”

“Alan Moore has written one of the most ambitious, formally innovative and densely researched works of historical fiction of recent years”. Kevin Jackson – The Independent

 The Critics Prize – Angoulême Comics Salon.

Best Graphic Novel – San Diego Comic Con
